Waterworld California is a water park located in Concord, California. It was developed, owned and operated by Six Flags. The Park is also home to more waterslides than any other water park in Northern California.

Incidents[edit]

On June 2, 1997, the Banzai Pipeline collapsed after students piled into the water slide in an attempt to break a school record. The collapse of the water slide resulted in 30 injures and the death of a 17-year-old female.[1] It was stated that the slide experienced weight forces three times greater than what it was designed for. This incident was featured on an episode of Dateline.[2]
